Could you please tell me which software will be best suited for 3D multi-phase reactive flow simulations including free surface. I am expecting your answer both in terms of accuracy, user friendliness, model setup and post processing ability. I had some exposure on using FLUENT 6.1, CFX-5.7 and STAR-CD 3.150 and our lab has all the 3 softwares. I found STAR-CD a little bit difficult to use. But it may be for new users only. May be it is very convenient for experienced users, I don't know. So could you please mention some advantages and dis-advantages of the three softwares.

Another question is: which software will be best suited for simulating crystallization?

Thanking you for your time and attention.

Best Regards,

Try to be independent and ask for testing licenses. Then you have an overview!!!!!

OK????

I have to do that. I tried a short-cut without success.

I doubt that any of the codes can handle free surface (vof) together with chemical reactions. Maybe FOAM (www.nabla.co.uk) can be used for that kind of problem.
